Member since Mar-10-07 · Last seen Feb-25-17
29 years old, USCF rating ~1750. Personal best around 2100 blitz on ICC and Playchess. Around 1800 on FICS (handle: dumbgai). Inactive in OTB competition since 2011. Inactive in all chess since 2013.

I still follow professional chess because I'm curious to see who wins, but overall my sense is that too many people take this board game way too seriously.

dumbgai: Half of the remaining players have actually lost classical rating points. That's tiebreaks for you.
 
   Feb-20-17 Ju Wenjun vs O Girya, 2017
 
dumbgai: 50...Be4 is a strange blunder because the rook endgame is clearly and easily winning for white. Granted white was already winning by that point but that move made it so much easier for her opponent.

dumbgai: 32. e4! is a very nice breakthrough. Either the d-file or e-file will be opened for white's rooks. At the end of the game the poor black king is overworked, having to guard both the bishop and queen. A good example of how much stronger queen+rook can be against queen+bishop due to ...

dumbgai: <moronovich: <(Caruana in the last round of the 2016 candidates against Karjakin, Karpov in the final game of his 1992 match against Short)--and it rarely turns out well.> And Anand in the final game,first match in Chennai vs MC.> And Kramnik in game 11 of the 2008 WCC ...

dumbgai: 73. Nd2? was a blunder that would have allowed black to escape with 73...Kc5! when white can't save her passed pawns. However, black missed her opportunity and quickly lost after that.
 
   Feb-16-17 A Ushenina vs Tan Zhongyi, 2017 (replies)
 
dumbgai: The decisive armageddon game in this match that up to this point had no draws. White had a crushing advantage at several different points in the game. For example 37. Rxf5! and white's attack breaks through. Even in the endgame white could have won, e.g. 57. Rb2 forces the black ...
 
   Feb-16-17 A Ushenina vs Tan Zhongyi, 2017
 
dumbgai: My sense from following this game live was that Ushenina was a victim of her own desire to play for a draw with white. Instead of punishing black's weak opening choice she went for lots of piece trades to get an "equal" endgame that was actually slightly better for black. From there
 
   Feb-14-17 V Gunina vs Shiqun Ni, 2017 (replies)
 
dumbgai: Nah black was already doing fine. White's central pawns were weak. However, that move certainly made things worse.
 
   Feb-14-17 A Bodnaruk vs M Hejazipour, 2017 (replies)
 
dumbgai: The official FIDE website sucks at explaining what happened, then. It said that Bodnaruk outplayed her opponent in the tiebreaker which is not true at all.

dumbgai: <Betterthan99> China is a heterogeneous country and she won't face any consequences outside the chess world. Nobody cares that much about chess.
